Israel has been forced to defend itself for a long time. It is even in the name of their military ‘IDF’ – Israel Defense Forces.
It makes sense that a nation the size of New Jersey (5th smallest state in the US), housing a people tortured, murdered and cast out for centuries, would refuse to be put under foot ever again if they could help it. It then follows that those efforts would turn out some of the world’s cutting edge technology.
Parts 1-3 of this series introduces one of the world’s best tanks, the Merkava Mach 4, with added APAM weaponry. This last part (4) finishes with Iron Fist – ‘iron dome’ technology for tanks. You can view the first 3 parts here: Part 1 / Part 2 / Part 3
There will come a time (Armageddon) when all this cutting edge technology will come into real play.
“For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat (the theatre of God’s final judgments), and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” Joel 3:1-2
